【The Varieties of Karma】- Continue from the previous to the next
Therefore when our minds continue, when they continue from the previous [thought] to the next, they are certainly bounded by the fruitional causes and effects. Therefore, we cannot be separated from this resultant body of the fruitional effect. This is the direct retribution from karma. We are certainly bounded by the environmental causes and effects. We cannot be separated from the external conditions. There is no way out of this and we need not spend time thinking about it. But what is truly important is the causally concordant cause and effect. When a concorded state of mind arises, that is when we know how it has arisen in such a way [from previous actions]. We did not understand Buddhism correctly before, and thus we cycle through these endless nights of ignorance, in these endless nights from the beginningless time. Now that we understand and realize this, it stops here. Sever it!
